Bob and I have enjoyed preaching/teaching for the folks at Rivers of Joy the last several weeks.
Charity keeps an eye on my work as I type or write each day from my computer or note pad. I remember when I was in Jefferson High School, I took a typing class (not a spelling class) and I was the only boy in the class with thirty girls. What was I doing in this class, why was I taking this class. Well I learned when I went to Seminary, what a blessing to know how to type.
(If I had only learn how to spell)
From 1982 thru June 1996 I printed my sermon manuscript each week, generally two per week. And several on Wednesday. Almost fourteen years of reading, writing, studying and printing manuscripts was a real joy. Let me see: Matthew, Acts, Romans, I Corinthians, Ephesians, Philippians, I Thessalonians (chapters 1-2) I Timothy (chapter 1) Philemon, Revelation, Daniel. The primary purpose of the Pastor/Teacher is to dispense or give out the Word. Our church allowed me the time to study the Word of God.
Now I will admit had I had a nice Gateway I might have been tempted to type all the message. But I have always loved to print rather than writing. Besides I needed to be able to read what I had written on Sunday. I learned this point the hard way. Since I generally depended upon what I had written when I spoke, at first my scribing was so bad I couldn't figure out what I had said. But quickly I learned to made sure the manuscript was correct, printed legible and words were spelled correctly. And of course, to make sure what I had said was what the text I was speaking on was in context.
